WOMEN'S LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE
Studies show that women business owners start businesses at 3x the rate of their male counterparts and female entrepreneurs, especially women of color, account for the fastest-growing demographic of entrepreneurs in the country.
Our goal is to make sure that today's female business owners have the tools they need to succeed in the business community and can take advantage and seek out various opportunities in their path.
EMBRACE is a full-day workshop designed to provide emerging young women in leadership positions, especially founders, with the educational support they need to elevate their leadership skills and businesses and in turn, their greater community.
Great Leaders don’t set out to be leaders,
they set out to make a difference

THE HUMBLE HUSTLE
In today's buzzword laden and meme-filled world, it's easy to believe that if we dream it, we will achieve it. All we have to do is know our worth and say yes to what's next and learn the art of saying no, right?
In the words of the Improv Performer I once shared a studio with, "Yes, and..." Those approaches to success are important but they gloss over all of the hardships, failures, and moments of humility in between.
In this workshop, Nicole shares her journey from rural poverty to six figures and all of the side hustles, setbacks, and embarrassing moments in between. Then hour long session will be interactive, fun, and hopefully, worthwhile to attendees.

TAKE UP SPACE:
How Women Can Navigate Conflict in Leadership
Why a Leadership Workshop?
We as women face critical decisions daily that impact us, the people around us, and women coming up behind us. It's important that we are confident in our ability to make these decisions and take steps that benefit our businesses, employees, and peers.
During EMBRACE, we will look inward and externally to find a path that allows us to step into who we know we are and can be. This one-day workshop will provide participants with a boost of encouragement, power talks, and networking and will assist individuals in developing a tangible strategic leadership plan.
EMBRACE is not another "feel-good manifest it and it will come true" type of workshop -- instead, it is designed to give you the tools to empower you to make the next steps actually happen. 2020 was a hard year and many of us have been left feeling like we are scrambling to start this year with our best foot forward. Our team feels the same way and are excited to join our participants to do the work together.
During this workshop, guest speakers focus on developing each participant’s leadership skills by teaching them how to:
create solid foundations
build success roadmaps
craft their mission and vision statements
and understand their positions as leaders
Together, let's amplify our voices to make a lasting impact
